Unique development offers best of City Centre living

A unique development in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is welcoming its first residents this month as a new Town House show home is unveiled to prospective buyers.

Heaton House is an exciting development of 14 freehold townhouses and 42 apartments, all focused around the meticulous restoration of the historic Georgian Old Heaton House villa itself.

Developer Elevate Property Group said the grand unveiling of Old Heaton House at the start of February was a huge success, and swiftly followed by a well-attended Knight Frank Open Day to view the newly-launched Town House showhome.

Elevate’s sales and marketing director, David Hofton, said more than 20 prospective buyers had attended the launch of the Town House on February 11 with the wider scheme now 75% sold.

“We are absolutely delighted to see this prestigious development attracting such interest and the open day saw several people reserve properties on the same day.

“Elevate has created a development of stunning new homes, architecturally in keeping with the industrial buildings they replace but combining 21st century standards of quality and luxury with the convenience of city centre living in one of the most desirable parts of the Midlands

“We’re expecting the first buyers of our luxury apartments to move in this month and the Town House show home is now open by appointment for prospective buyers looking to purchase these impressive two and three bedroom homes in Camden Street.

“All our townhouses are Freehold, all have terraced gardens and all have allocated on-site gated car parking.”

David said the development, including six loft apartments, was already more than 75 per cent sold.

“We are urging anyone interested to view early given the feedback at the launch event. Buyers are telling us they are keen on a location which is just a short walk from the popular bars and restaurants St Paul’s Square yet in the heart of the sought-after Jewellery Quarter, which was named one of the best places to live in the Midlands by the Sunday Times.

“All of the properties at Heaton House offer the very best of city centre living and demand has already been very high.”

Old Heaton House, which stands in the heart of the development, was built in about 1823 for William Cotterill, a wealthy Birmingham merchant of high status, but a century of industry on the site had left the house in poor condition and swamped by industrial buildings.

Elevate cleared the area and have restored the Georgian house to its prime, with the apartments and townhouses sympathetically developed around it to reflect the local history and architecture while bringing 21st century standards of quality and luxury.

Three bedroom town houses start at £500,000, with one bedroom apartments at Heaton House starting from £252,500, and two bedrooms from £310,000. For more information, visit elevatepropertygroup.co.uk/residential/heaton-house
